Michigan State Holds Final Four Practice At Timberwolves Facility | Video

Michigan State Practice Mayo Clinic SquareFriday, in addition to participating in the open to the public practice at US Bank Stadium, the Michigan State Spartans conducted a private workout on the hardwood of The Courts at Mayo Clinic Square, the headquarters and practice facility of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx.

The nearly four-year-old, state-of the-art complex sits in the western part of downtown Minneapolis, 0.8 miles west of US Bank Stadium and 0.7 miles north of the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, MSU’s home base during the 2019 Final Four.

The Wolves and Lynx shared HQ is located immediately across the street from Target Center.

Below are highlights of Tom Izzo’s team running the floor at the modern NBA training space.

Izzo’s connection to the Timberwolves revolves around his very close friendship with the late Flip Saunders, the former Wolves coach and head of basketball operations, who passed away in 2015. Izzo remains tight with the Saunders family, including Flip’s son Ryan, who is currently serving as Minnesota’s interim head coach.
